9:00am
grade school. there was nobody at home that could help me figure out how i could reach my dream. >> applying to college can be very bewildering. there's over 400,000 low income students every year who graduate qualified to go to a four year college and they just don't go. my name is michael carter and i help qualified underserved students apply to, pay for and stay in college. we bring mentors to high schools to help students through the entire process. how many more apps do you have to do? >> none. i did them all. >> that's pretty good. it's completely free. students pick their mentor and they meet weekly until they're accepted into college. >> i've never really thought of myself as the greatest student. now i'm a sophomore at the
9:01am
university. my full tuition is covered and i'm men are tore mentoring a high school student. i'm proof strive for college works. >> together we are going to solve this problem. over a career, having a college degree can mean earning nearly a million dollars more than if you only have a high school degree. to get more details or if you know someone who is making a big difference in the lives of others, go to cnnheros.com. nominate a cnn hero. thanks for watching. tune in tomorrow morning for your bottom line. that and he my show at 9:30. newsroom international is next. welcome to newsroom international. >> happy friday. >> this hour we're taking you around the world in 60 minutes. we begin of course in south
9:02am
africa. oscar pistorius getting bail. t stay right here, we'll be live from pretoria in just a minute. and a snowstorm putting tens of millions of people in a deep freeze. we'll take you to one of the hardest hit states and tell you where the storm is headed next. first of all, though, a major development in the oscar pistorius murder case. the olympic track star no longer in jail. he's left the court already. >> so there are some conditions, how far. the magistrate said bail at $1 million, so that's about $112,000. he can't go back to his house. he has to hand over his passport as well as ghuns. and he's prohibited from drinking alcohol while out on bail. >> also has to report to police twice a week. let's go to restore i can't and nic robertson standing outside the courtroom.i can't and nic robertson standing outside the courtroom.
9:03am
the imagineis straig magistrate gave a long explanation of why he was glantiglant i grant being baing bail. >> he wanted to essentially eviscerate the police investigation so far, the information, the evidence that the state had put through, called it circumstantial at best. he said that he wasn't entirely convinced that this case was as he had put -- as originally described premeditated murder. he said for example the police have probably contaminated the crime scene, that there were phones found in the bathroom at the crime scene, the police hadn't bothered following up to check where or what calls might have been made from those phones. other issues he said that the prosecution hadn't done enough to convince him that pistorius was at risk of leaving the country. so very hard on the prosecution
9:04am
perhaps as well as finding holes in the affidavit that oscar pistorius had launched with the court saying he wasn't entirely convinced that reeva steenkamp wouldn't have called out if he had done what he said he did, why didn't she call out. so questions, but clearly coming down hard against the prosecution. i'm joined by a courtroom artist who sat in that courtroom. you saw the emotion on the faces. you've been through many trials. how does this compare? >> well, this one is special. i think in south africa and the level of the person that was accused of murder, this is one really special. a special event -- well, last week was tremendous. >> and we've had no pictures from inside there, no cameras, no photographs during the proceedings, no video. your pictures are it. can you show us some of the pictures? and here we have -- talk us through it. >> this is the attorney, i think
9:05am
was the day that he did really well with oscar. >> and this is oscar pistorius? >> this is oscar pistorius. this is the judge and now for the state. just full of media, trying to create emotion and an idea of what's actually happening in court. just chaos inside there. >> the strongest image you've got here showing the emotion on oscar pistorius, which picture would you have? >> this is the family i did today. this is his coach at the back. this is his father and the sister and brother. so that was important with this judgment to get them into a shot and trying to get emotion. but there was no -- >> a took a lot of time.
9:06am
we heard from the coach saying he's very concerned about his mental well,. wanted him to get back into training. there were moments when he was breaking down in tears in the courtroom. were you able to capture those? >> yes, and in the previous ones that we're not showing right now, i tried capturing it, but it's so hard because it's so emotional for me. >> have you ever seen that kind of emotion in a courtroom? >> no. definitely not. that was the first time. intense everybody. >> oscar pistorius such a star in the country, normally full of life. have you ever seen him looking like this before? >> no, i know him personally because i train on the same athletic track as he does. and i'm a coach there and this is the first time i've seen him like this. he's also happy, never to have a
9:07am
bad thing to say. and this is very sad. >> and the last few hours, he's left here, he'll be with his family. how do you think he'll come back mentally, emotionally from this week, let's not say forever, but from this week? >> obviously he's a fighter. we know that. he's got a very, very strong team backing him. we saw that the whole week with his attorneys. his forensic team is good. he will come back fighting and i think hopefully turn out good for him. >> thank you very much indeed. he'll come back fighting, that's what we can expect. >> terrific interview there. nic robertson there in pretoria. >> rare you see the court artist really emotional about this. somebody who knows the person
9:08am
that he's actually sketching. and pistorius major a-list celebrity throughout the world. the cases has 34r50e9completely consumed the country. robyn kurnow spoke to a man who has been showing up at the courthouse every day. >> it's amazing how my family members feel completely different to who you and i him. >> do they think he should go to jail? >> some of them think he should rot in jail and he's a danger to society. i mean, it's funny how yesterday we called him a hero and the following day people just say, no, he should just be put to the sword. >> interesting stuff. people who were inside the courtroom during the bail announcement say pistorius mostly stared at the floor and cried into his hands when the magistrate mentioned the name of his now dead girlfriend. >> the chief magistrate announced his decision to free pistorius, but not before speaking almost two hour,
9:09am
reading every detail of that case out loud. here is his voice. >> in this instance the accused has reached out to try to meet the state case. of course against the background of those improbabilities that i have seen and mentioned. that reaching out in the after the, in the way that he did, placing it before the court, together with the fact that none of the factors that need to be established have been established, i come to the conclusion that the accused has made a case to be released today. >> and in a few minutes we'll be talking to a south african law professor. in many ways their justice system is similar to the u.s., but there are plenty of big differences and you'll hear about those coming up p. and another big story we're folk here in the united states, a ferocious snowstorm paralyzing a huge section of the country. dumping snow from kansas to michigan, all across the region. schools are closing, flights
9:10am
grounded. it will be a real mess out there. cars sliding across icy roads. >> and this scene in chicago pretty typical. there have been hundreds of accidents. in oklahoma, one was deadly, a teenager reportedly killed when his truck crashed. >> conditions in kansas also pretty treacherous. more than 14 inches of snow fell in wichita. only one other storm in the city's history was worse. that was more than 50 years ago. >> let's go to wichita. how are people dealing with this much snow? >> reporter: well, most schools and universities in kansas and missouri are closed today. businesses throughout the region were closed all yesterday. they opened a lot later today. and the kansas government also started a little later today, around 10:00. usually they're in earlier. but here is the warning that the kansas officials sent out to
9:11am
residents. this is pretty good. please clear off hoods and roofs of your vehicles before driving. of course you don't want big chunks of snow obstructing your vision, but all the roads are open and they're pretty clear today. >> we know kansas, missouri declared states of emergency. do you have a lot of folks stranded on the roads? >> reporter: there were some. the national guard patrolled about 800 miles of roads throughout kansas. they helped about 70 stranded cars. the good news is that there was zero deaths, 106 accidents, 15 injury, but people have been pretty responsible in the storm. >> that's amazing 106 accidents and nobody's injured. a hazing. >> weather looks pretty sunny. is it cold there? >> reporter: it was really cold this morning. it was about 14 degrees. but right now, we're staying pretty warm. it's getting better. very sunny. yesterday wasn't sunny at all.
9:12am
>> you know what it is, it's that cnn jacket. many layers. stay warm, if you can. hundreds of flights canceled. take a look at just how bad the conditions were at the airport in wichita yesterday. >> karen maginnis is going to join us from the weather center. how bad are the disruptions? >> a little more than 100 canceled out of the chicago o'hare airport. ground delays have increased over the last hour. it's an hour and a half. minneapolis and new york also getting in on the action with increasing delays expected there and i dare say we'll also expect delays at some of the other mid western airports, maybe detroit might get added in as the weather deteriorates there. but we have live pictures coming out of chicago. this is not a whole lot of snow. it's the visibility and the temperatures 28 degrees right now as we take a live view. and chicago, you may see maybe another inch or so, but that's
9:13am
about it as our storm system just sweeps across the great lakes. it's really winding down. but leftover snowfall still going to make the roads slick. and speaking of slick, across the southeast, here comes the rain and in some cases we could see six or eight inches over the next five days. another big story, the new england area this weekend, looks like we could see another round of snow there. >> ouch. all right. thanks, good to see you. here is more of what we're working on in hour. the most wanted man from mexico to chicago. the search still on for joaquin guzman. and we've put a man on the moon, but a group now working on putting a person on mars. to heh as you age... would you take it? well, there is.

9:17am
territory, that they just needed to confirm that information through dna testing. and then they completely backtracked and today there is no more about the whereabouts of the man who is considered to be the world's most powerful drug lord. he's the most wanted man in mexico, and the u.s. government has a $5 million bounty on his head. he's known around the world as el chapo. as the reputed leader of the largest mexican criminal gang, he's believed responsible for shipping as much as eight tons of cocaine to the u.s. a year. >> he's the guy currently at war against the government of mexico, against law enforcement and military forces. >> reporter: guzman was also recently named chicago's public enemy number one. a title once held by al capone. he's accused of trafficking between 1500 and 2,000 kilos of cocaine through chicago per honesty. >> you can say that he virtually
9:18am
has his fingerprint on the gun that are killing the children of this city. >> reporter: the 58-year-old grew up poor in the mountains of the northern mexican state. he learned the secrets of the drug trade with the man known as the god appear in the late '80s. he was arrested on murder and drug charges, but allegedly kept on running the business from prison until his escape in 2001 in a laundry cart. forbes magazine has called guzman the world's most powerful drug trafficker, estimating his fortune at $1 billion and naming him the 63rd most powerful person in the world in 2012. according to dea documents in the united states, guzman has disfrid distribution cells in chicago and new york and his criminal organization has been involved
9:19am
in the shipment, store allege and distribution of marijuana and heroin. this mexican attorney who met him in prison described the drug lord as invincible. guzman is like god in mexico, he said. nobody sees him, but he's everywhere. he's a myth. >> and guzman has been on the run for the last 12 years. he reportedly married his third or maybe fourth wife by the name of emma in 2007 on the day of her 18th birthday. he, of course, is 58. >> so the last time you and i talked about this guy, you were saying he was wanted in chicago. what is his connection in connection? >> for his criminal organization, chicago is like a hub. he uses the city to discontinue butte compa distribute cocaine and marijuana and heroin. he also has hubs in california,
9:20am
arizona, new york, and basically he distributes cocaine throughout the country. but without el chapo, there would probably be not a lot of cocaine in chicago. >> wow. unbelievable. >> very powerful drug. >> you've been up all night. have a good weekend. >> thank you. >> good to see you. here's who are of what we're working on this hour for newsroom international. only a week before new talks, u.s. officials warn iran is one step closer to a nuclear weapon. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair has the fastest retinol formula. to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles in just one week. neutrogena®. to find you a great deal, even if it's not with us.

welcome back. we take you around the world this 60 minutes. in iran, the government is moving forward with its nuclear program by installing new centrifuges hat an iranian enrichment plant. in experts say that will allow iran to enrich uranium at a rate three to five times greater than before. this you'move could jeopardize s with the u.s. and other countries. >> want to bring in elyse on this. what does this mean in terms of
9:24am
the equation here, what do we think iran is capable of when you look at its nuclear potential, is it something the u.s. should be worried about? >> ultimately down the road. right now no one knows where wl these centrifuges will even work because iran has had a lot of trouble in the past using this type of technology. but once they do start spinning, it means iran could produce nuclear material at a much higher rate and the concern that officials say is they could sneak out and have enough material for a nuclear bomb and they're already trying to work on the other components such as the delivery system. so it moves them one step closer. >> the u.s. and five other countries will offer this list of incentives to iran to get to do some things in return for others. walk us through and tell us how it's different than what was offered last year, which was pretty similar stuff. >> well, last year they offered iran small easing in sanctions
9:25am
in exchange, aviation, spare parts, for instance, cooperation on peaceful nuclear activities in exchange for them shipping out some of their nuclear stockpile and suspending enrichment. now we're talking about an underground facility where they're producing the most alarming uranium at 20%. so in exchange now on gold and precious metals, which is a little bit better for iran because it can use this for bartering, there's intense sanctions on them right now, in can change for that they want them to close this facility and also ship out its stockpile of 20%. this isn't even what we're talking about today, this other plant has only 3%. so no one is talking about canceling the talks because this 20% is really what the most important is. and what's difference, michael, not much. iranian elections are coming up in june and no one thinks
9:26am
they're ready to deal yet, but they hope after that starting to feel the bite of those sanctions, currency has dropped 80% in the last year, hoping ultimately that there will be a chance for some negotiations town the road. >> all right respe, thanks so m. a familiar script in many ways. >> covering bush for eight year, carrots and sticks, there was very little that moved forward on this. so we'll see what happens here. >> the sanctions are biting. that's something we do though. b know. we'll see. argo is a story about the daring rescue during the iranian hostage crisis. of course jimmy carter weighing in on all of this. >> we've seen the movie. it's great. he told piers morgan what he thought about the film's accuracy. >> let me say it's a great drama and i hope it gets academy award for best film because i think it
9:27am
deserves it. the other thing i would say is that 90% of the contributions to the ideas and the consummation of the plan was canadian and the movie gives almost full credit to the american cia. and with that exception, the movie is very good. but ben affleck's character in the film was only -- he was only in tehran a day and a half. and the main hero in my opinion was ken taylor who orchestrated the entire process. >> great movie, but it shifts the credit a little bit over. >> it is hollywood. when we come back, oscar pistorius free on bail. >> so what's going to happen next? we'll have a south african law expert weigh in. ♪ [ male announcer ] a car has a rather small rear-view mirror, so we can occasionally glance back at where we've been. it has an enormous windshield so we can look ahead to where we are going.

9:32am
girlfriend. >> prosecutors are calling this premeditated murder. defense objects to that. next court day is in june. south african chief imagineis straig thanis straight saying he does not see pistorius is a flight risk and he put a list of conditions on bail. >> he's not allowed to go back to his house. he has to hand over his passport. prosecutors plan to argue pistorius intentionally shot his girlfriend to death. he says it was all an accident because he thought she was an intruder. >> let's go live to pretoria, talk to luella lewis, attorney and law professor. the other day you told us you hoped pistorius would get bail. that has happened. tell us what it says about the entire case in particular when you see the magistrate as he did shooting holes in how the prosecution and the police went about prosecuting this stage of
9:33am
the case. >> yes, ultimately we came for the conclusion of the bail application and it was a long day, it was a long week. but ultimately i think the magistrate poked holes this both the defense case as well as that of the prosecution authority. ultimately we must be mindful of the fact that we are still at the beginning of the matter. this is early stages. still a mountain to climb for both the defense as well as the state. and ultimately a lot of work to be done by both sides. >> we heard the fact that, yeah, you say both sides, they now go back to their respective corners, figure out where their arguments were flawed, they come back by the end of the year with a trial. how does the role of public opinion play in all of this? you've got a judge here, very different than the american system, and the court of public opinion. p how does that factor into how
9:34am
the judge sees his fate? >> you must remember that we don't have a jury system in south africa. but we do, however, every now and then make use of a schedule. the first difference. and in the south africa law, we have the situation where there are competent verdicts in criminal roer. in this instance we will typically see oscar pistorius will also face a charge of culpable whom which homicide which amounts to manslaughter. they look at points of dispute and ultimately it boils down to a difference between intent and what we call negligence, then might be in for a fight in the trial itself. obviously if ultimately the state can prove intent, they should be successful with the
9:35am
murder charge. if not, they will proceed with the neglect againigence charge. which in our lawyer only requires 1% negligence. >> really quickly here, where does it go from here? he's not allowed to go home because it's a crime scene. does he go with his family, does he get any kind of security or protection as he travels around in the country? >> what will happen typically obviously tonight he will spend time with his family, probably with his dad and his sister and maybe a couple of other friends. he's not allowed to go near his own home. and the reason for that is pure and simple because there's still a lot of investigating work to be done. forensic evidence to be obtained by the state. that can only be done in due course by the prosecuting authority and they don't want oscar pistorius or relatives and friends to interfere with that. so ultimately there is a lot of other conditions set to the
9:36am
bail, as well. there was an amount set of 1 million which is $100,000 u.s. dollars roundabout. and he is not able to leave the area without the court's permission and so forth. >> and he has to give up the guns and a lot of it pretty standard stuff. li good to see you. a lot of emotional stuff that try to sway a jury one way or the other, pot going to happen in this case. you're dealing with a judge who is totally impartial. >> and a different judge than the one we saw in this proceeding. >> yeah, the next one will go to the judge. p. after discovery of this body in a water tank, california hotel is now reeling. trying to repair the damage. [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix.

when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking.

stories that have people talking, the grisly tale of the body found in the water tank. >> hotel guests who actually drank the same water for more than two weeks with a dead body in the tank, yeah, okay, they don't have anything to worry about. tests came up negative for harmful bacteria. >> reporter: weater from the ta, something the cecil hotel doesn't want you to see. alvin taylor helped us videotape it with a cell phone. chlorine. what the city is using to flush the hotel's entire water system after the gruesome discovery of a woman's body inside one of the rooftop tanks that may have been there for as long as two and a half weeks. four tanks connect to the hotel's drinking supply and during those weeks, hundreds of
9:41am
residents and hotel guests have been using it. >> turns my stomach. a lot of people left and went to another hotel. just the thought of it. >> reporter: the woman inside the tank, 21-year-old a lisa lam, she arrived on january 26. >> very outgoing, very friendly. >> reporter: she's the manager of a bookstore around the corner from the hotel called the last bookstore. one of the last places lam was seen by anyone as she bought records and presents for her parents and sister. >> talking about what book she was getting and whether or not what she was getting would be too heavy for her to carry around as she traveled or take home with her. >> reporter: that was january 31st. the young woman planned to see more of california, say police.
9:42am
her parents flew down to los angeles to plead for the city to help find their daughter. outside the family's restaurant near vancouver, a memorial for a young life lost too soon in an unforgettable manner. >> it kind of feels like the beginning of a war novel. phillip murder low will figure out what happened. unfortunately, this is real life. >> so obviously it's a heartbreaking story for this victim here. to we have any other information about what actually went down? >> well, we know that the l.a. county coroner has completed the first phase of the autopsy. we call it the first phase because the cause of death is being deferred. remember this is a body that has been submerged in water for some time. it is not going to be very simple. they have to go through
9:43am
toxicology reports. not expecting a cause of death until for two months. >> let's get back to the health report. we're saying how on earth could it not have had harmful bacteria in it when you have a body sitting in the drinking water tank. >> yeah, sort of defies common sense except we're talking about science here. what the scientists here from the l.a. department of public health are telling us is that there are a couple of factors. it's been cool in los angeles. the water temperature in that tank was cool. that combined with the fact that in city water, there is a certain level of chlorine to call all of those bugs. those two factors made the water distasteful though it may sound still safe to drink. >> my goodness. good to see you. what a story. so this is called mission for america. we're talking about this millionaire who wants to see somebody put on mars. >> that's right.
9:44am

9:48am
>> reporter: but there's a chance. a long shot. that he will at least see humans fly by the red planet. millionaire dennis tito is leading a privately funded benefit to mars called mission for america. the jaw dropping seemingly outrageous undertaking would lift off in 2018 just five years from now when mars will be in spitting distance of earth about as close as ever gets. roughly 36 million miles. tito is no stranger to space flight. he was a nasa engineer and in 2001 became the first space tourist flying on a russian rocket to the international space station. >> it goes well beyond anything that i would have ever dreamed. >> reporter: plans for the mars mission will be fully unveiled next week in washington. while tito hasn't said it's a human mission that seems pretty clear. some of the principal players involved with experts in space medicine and life support. the mission would be what's called a, quote, fast free

return and last 501 days. that's not like what nasa wants to eventually do, have humans land and work on mars before returning. sources close to the mars mission tell cnn this is just a, quote, really very simple fly around mars. talk about an understatement. what we don't know is who is going and how many, how much it will cost or how they'll get there. what rocket and spacecraft. sources tell us, quote, it's an open field with a wide range of solutions. there are many millionaires and billionaires out there talking about mining asteroids, space hotels and moon bases. but all that is way down the road. pulling off a mars mission in five years, well, that's shooting for the moon. john zarrella, cnn, miami. would you go? >> we'll stay put. >> yeah. a bit busy that day. movie industry's biggest

10:03am
decided not to sue lance armstrong, but now there are multiple reports that says the department of justice is changing its mind on this and will reportedly join the whistle blower lawsuit that has been filed, but is kept under seal from former teammate floyd landis. and what all of this could mean for lance armstrong is a big legal fight that could end up costing him tense of millions of dollars. the united states postal service during that run where lance armstrong won from 2001 to 2004 paid lance armstrong and his cycling team some $30 million. this whistle blower lawsuit brought by floyd landis which very few people have been able to get much information on basically says that because lance armstrong and his teammates used performance enhancing drugs, that they essentially defrauded the government in this case. so there have been talks, we got a statement from one of lance armstrong's attorneys saying that lance and his
10:04am
representatives worked constructively over these last few weeks with federal lawyers to resolve the case fairly, but those talks failed because we disagree about whether the postal service was damaged. the postal service's own study shows that the service benefited tremendously from its sponsorship respect benefits totally more than $100 million. but here basically in the end, another big legal fight. could cost him tens of millions of dollars. and an athlete no longer in jail, we're talking about oscar pistorius. the country's chief magistrate granted him bail more than a week of a her his girlfriend died, was killed from gunshot wounds inside his house. pistorius' bail is about $112,000. also he can't go back to his house, of course. it is a crime scene.
10:05am
he has to hand over his passport along with his guns and he's not allowed to drink alcohol while out on bail. his next court appearance is set for june 4. before setting him free on bail, the magistrate ran down every minute detail of the case so far including what happened the night of the shooting. it was valentine's day. pistorius says he was convinced that an intruder was inside his house hiding in his bathroom and that's why he opened fire. prosecutors will argue that he knew who was in the bathroom and that he killed his girlfriend intentionally. exactly one week from now, forced spending cuts will go into effect automatically if congress and the president don't reach a deal on the deficit. so how do you feel about it? a bloomberg poll showing 54% of those want those cuts delayed. 40% say cut away.
10:06am
ali velshi and christine romans have a look at other ways that the cuts could also hit you. >> it's almost upon us, a stupid name for a stupid thing. >> we're calling it the sequester. it's a terrible word. it was never supposed to happen. the sequester is almost like the or else. congress and the president were supposed to figure out how to cut the deficits or else they would have a sequester, forced spending cuts. >> so here we are, a month and a half past the original deadline, and still no deal to avoid it. you've heard the big numbers. $1.2 trillion in cuts over ten years. $85 billion this year. 13% cuts to defense. 9% to everything else. our colleagues here at cnn money came up with some of the specifics of what this thing, these forced budget cuts, are going to feel like. >> and there are dozens of ways you'd feel it, but look at education first. maybe more than 14 thourgs teacher and staff members pacing
10:07am
layoffs as school districts deal with the cuts. also 70,000 students would no longer have a spot in head start. criminal justice, all fbi workers would be forced to take up to 14 unpaid days off. border patrol, anything that has to do with law enforcement on the federal level would face cuts. and national parks. >> that's actually something that matters to a lot of people. you want to go for a springtime hike, you better call ahead to see if the sequester affects reduced hours and services. and last and most annoying, travel. prepare for longer line, slower security checks at airports. >> here's something you don't have to worry about. medicare and social security largely untouched. safety net programs like medicaid and food programs also exempt. but everyone will feel it one way or another. we will not call it the sequester. forced budget cuts will hit you. >> back to you. exactly a week from now, that is when those forced spending cuts will go into effect automatically, right, if congress and the president don't
10:08am
actually reach a deal. so want to talk a little bit about that with jim acosta at the white house. and, jim, do we know, are there going to be any kind of talks between president and members of congress in front of the cam rasz, behind wi cameras, behind the cameras? >> reporter: we know the president has conversations with republican leaders on the hill yesterday. the white house is not providing any kind of insights into how they went. whether or not there is flexibility on the side of the white house or on the side of congress at this point. and so really at this point everybody is looking at this from a distance and wondering like everybody else what is going to happen one week from today. what we can tell is you that the administration seems to be ramp etdi ratcheting up the prech on congress. they're talking about the way these budget cuts will affect the folks watching this right
10:09am
now. earlier this week they were talking about cuts to the head start program, meat inspectors that might be furloughed, and then the secretary of transportation, ray lahood, a republican, he came to the podium at the white house briefing to warn of what will happen with the faa. he says that there will be furloughs of faa employees, that means air traffic controllers who won't be showing up for work on certain days of the week because of these budget cuts and that will affect airports because they say without all the air traffic controllers that they would normally have manning those stations, that they're going to have to slow things down going into major airports like new york, chicago, los angeles. and that in the end is going to result this delays. here's what the secretary had to say. >> obviously as always safety is our top priority and we will never allow the amount of air travel we can handle safely to
10:10am
take off and land which means travelers should expect delays. flights to major cities like new york, chicago and san francisco and others could experience delays of up to 90 minutes during peak hours because we have fewer controllers on staff. delays in these major airports will ripple across the country. >> reporter: now, that is in addition to those tsa workers that the department of homeland security was warning about last week, that those folks might be furloughed, as well, and that might also result in delays at the airport and so we are one week away from all of this taking place. and the administration at least day by day seems to be satisfied at this point taking the position that, hey, we can just go ahead and roll out how all of this is going to affect you and maybe not negotiate with congress so much until we get a little bit closer. >> all right. jim, thanks. we'll be watching very closely. here is also what we have
10:11am
this hour. putting a bug in your boss' office, sending naked pictures to a co-worker, marrying a drug dealer and lying about it. could you work in a place like that? according to internal reports, it all happened at the fbi. and then of course, police caught on camera kicking and punching a suspected robber. the investigation into the forceful arrest of a 19-year-old in canada. at a dry cleaner, we replaced people with a machine. what? customers didn't like it. so why do banks do it? hello? hello?! if your bank doesn't let you talk to a real person 24/7, you need an ally. hello?

major development in the pistorius murder case. he's no longer in jail. he was granted bail, left the court. we have details on the conditions of his bail in a moment, but first i talked to a law professor in south africa who is watching this case very closely. he clears up things that are similar and very different than how we handle things here. >> you mus remembt remember we have a jury system, but we did make use of officials. that's the first difference. and also take into account that in the south africa law, we have the situation where there are competent verdicts in our
10:15am
criminal procedure both into the main charge. well see oscar pistorius will also face a charge of culpable homicide which amounts to manslaughter in the american system. >> want to go live to the courtroom in pretoria. robyn kurnow has been following this every step of the way. wow, i don't think you've slept in a week or so. you've been out there in front of the courthouse. you told us earlier that when the bail announcement was actually announced, people were shouting, yes, they were cheering for pistorius. what has been the general reaction? >> reporter: well, in that courtroom, there was sort of a whoop of delight from people in the gallery behind him. what is key is that he barely registered it. you candidn't really see any emotion coming from him. so that's one thing to mention. this is a pan who is in shall sort of shock. it's all sinking in.
10:16am
his family also huddled around, sort of praying. there wasn't huge jubilation within that courtroom or very obvious sense of celebration. i think this family and oscar pistorius are very aware this is a tough life changing few years ahead of him in terms of fighting this if they want to. outside the courtroom, speaking to people here, walking through as we're doing lives, there's mixed reaction. i think oscar pistorius still holds a deep emotional attachment particularly with young south africans who have found him inspirational. this is what their opinion is of the way this has played out. >> it's amazing how my family members would feel completely different to how i am. >> do they think he should go to jail? >> some of them think he should rot in jail and he's a danger to society. and i mean, it's funny how yesterday we called him a hero and now saying he should be put
10:17am
to the sword. >> reporter: and you know there's one comment we haven't heard from reeva steenkamp's family have not yet made any acknowledgement of the dramas taking place in court or the bail agreement. so i don't know if they will comment at all. just remember as he goes home, we're not sure where he's going to go. he can't go back to his home where the crime scene took place, but he will be within his family's homes, one of them. as he goes to sleep tonight, remember, reradio steenkamp's family still grieving of course for that young woman who won't be coming back. >> absolutely. thank you. appreciate it. police in canada caught kicking and punching a suspected robber. ♪ ♪ ♪

10:21am
danger. paula newton joining us from ottawa. what does this videotape reveal? >> just take a look at that video. it was hard not respond once the lawyer add that had to evidence. they responded to a break-in at a drug store and this is what we see. the lawyer for the suspect entered this into evidence today, it's why we have it in terms of a bail hearing. but on the police report, it says these police officers feared for their lives and yet the defense lawyer is saying look at this tape, look how many times they beat him in the head and they say in the genitals. but if you watch the video clearly, when you see that his gun is clearly to his left-hand side, the police see that and another officer actually pushes the gun away and then punches start flying.
10:22am
we're only seeing a short snippet of what happened that evening and so it's certainly still being investigated. >> the lapd beating of rodded a rodney king. do they suspect there's more to the story than this small clip. >> they're not saying. i spoke with provincial police and they're investigating the incident that took place on february 2, took place in a drug store. and that the surveillance video is part of the investigation, though they then told me they had no further comment at this time. but just take a look at that video. it's cringe worthy and that's what the defense lawyer pointed out in court, saying this is some of the worst videotaped evidence i've ever seen of excessive force on a suspect. now, that is his opinion. police say they are still investigating and that could take weeks. but certainly the suspect saying, look, i did all i could to surrender.
10:23am
and when you look at that tape, from the small snippet that we see, it's pretty textbook. he's lying flat down, his face on the floor, and he threw the gun before he did that. >> what's happening to those cops who are in that tape? >> they've been suspended with pay pending the investigation. but what is key here is the fact that they're not investigating their own. the provincial police have come into investigate all of this. and you have to wonder exactly, this is a young man, 19 years old, you have to wonder what's going on with policing in that town. there has been a rash ever these kinds of burglaries and certainly police trying to get one step ahead of it. at the same time, defense lawyers saying look at this tape. >> paul larks thank you. really appreciate it. will is an amazing story, employees behaving really badly, sending naked photos to co-workers, all while using company phones. and it happened at the fbi. frts tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 this morning, i'm going to trade in hong kong.

10:38am
department was actually damaged. the attorneys for armstrong put out a statement indicating that in their view, the postal service benefited hundreds of millions of dollars from sponsoring armstrong while he was racing. it's important because under the rules of whistle blower lawsuits, it means the government apparently believes this lawsuit has merit, it also means that the guy claiming to be a whistle blower, floyd landis, could get paid some of the money the government recovers if he prevails. so there had been so much talk, you know, after all the admissions by lance armstrong that there wouldn't be any litigation. now it turns out there will be some and all indications are that the united states justice department is going to be a part of that existing lawsuit. >> so that's a big time litigation when you have the whole force of the government and the justice department on you, yeah? >> absolutely. and the question of course is
10:39am
just how much the postal service was actually damaged, if the a all, or if in fact as lance armstrong's attorneys allege the government, the postal service, actually benefited. in which case there would be no damage and it would be hard to make a case. >> all right. joe, thank you. appreciate it. fierce winter storm now going to slam into new england. that is going to be happening fairly soon this weekend. much of the midwest feeling the plan right now, the storm dumping snow and plenty of it from kansas to michigan. all that after the break. the battle of bataan, 1942.
